1st place in the CD cover contest of the Sparkasse Essen
The sampler initiated by the Sparkasse Essen is mainly aimed at young bands and offers them in this way a particularly good opportunity to present themselves.
The CD cover proposal was created based on the wear and tear of music instruments, the garbage and other traces left by the practice of music. Pretty quickly, these artifacts of music I found created an aesthetic that was used for the CD artwork. The sampler, which mainly aims at young bands, offers them in this edition a chance to present themselves. For the booklet, I therefore paid a visit to each band in their studio, in order to show their actual traces. The track list is a list of handwritten songs (by the bands) which echoes a set list for a concert. I drafted the idea during my first semester. I then won 1st place of a contest organized by the Sparkasse Essen and could implement it in 2013.
